Tuesday Links - 7 May

The Other McCain is up first with Crazy People Are Dangerous

The man’s own family wants him locked up in the looney bin, but for some reason they kept turning him loose until he got shot by a cop.

Pirate's Cove is next with Chicago Mayor Looking To Implement Plan To Move Illegal Away From Downtown

It’s almost like the leaders in Sanctuary City Chicago do not want all the illegals in view for some reason.

Impro Guns brings us the following. Homemade MAC-10 Three videos on homemade versions of the MAC-10. The first video includes a lot of swearing, and not a lot of info. The 2nd is in Spanish. The 3rd is rundown of the design. This is a firearm that your average shade-tree mechanic has the tools, and the ability to manufacture.

Wombat-socho - FMJRA 2.0: No Satisfaction

Just picked up the most recent in Klaus Schulze La Vie Electronique series of CDs on Thursday and ripped it today. First disc seems to have a lot of pseudo-operatic stuff that isn’t too great; we’ll see how the other two work out.

Meep at Stump - Public Pension Governance Drama in Ohio

Ohio State Teachers Retirement System (STRS) is having some drama, as a consulting firm has resigned due to power struggles between competing interests. The plan participants, whether current teachers or retirees, are angry about STRS investment staff getting bonuses while they do not get cost-of-living adjustments for retirement benefits. All of this while in an economic environment of high inflation… they aren’t the first and will not be the last.

Tam at View From The Porch - Red Gold

Apparently one of the things that has kept gold's price at record highs the last couple years is consumer demand in one of the largest economies on the planet.

Again from Wombat-socho - Rule 5 Sunday: Cherie Currie

Lead singer for the all-girl punk band the Runaways (you may have heard of her bandmates Lita Ford and Joan Jett), Cherie Currie went on to become an actress, a mom, and is currently raising hell on X.
